Popcorn Homemade - Easy and Fast To Make

Popcorn Homemade


I never thought that I'm going to make popcorn in my life because I usually have to buy it or eat it only if I watch movies on the cinema. But not for now because I can make it by myself that are way better than the popcorn that sells on the market and the fact that I can get more and more popcorn without spending more of my money is great, okay!

A few days ago, my little brother asking me to make a popcorn again since we already have some of the popcorn kernels left. I just said 'yes' but hold it for a while to find the best time to make it. I guess today is the day. Without further a due, let's get started!

What you will need:
  • Pan with lids (the bigger the better)
  • Ladle
  • A cup of popcorn kernels
  • 4 spoons of butter or margarine
  • 5-8 spoons of sugar

Popcorn Homemade


Steps:

Popcorn

1. Heat your pan and add two spoons of butter.

2. Once your butter melts, add a cup of popcorn kernels and stir lightly to make sure that the butter and popcorn kernels are well mixed. Next, close the pan with the lid and wait for about 7-10 minutes for the popcorn kernels to pop. Please make sure that the heat remains lower and stir a bit so that it won't be burnt at the bottom.

3. Take out the cooked popcorn and put it aside.


Caramel

1. Using the same pan that you used before with a lower heat, add sugar and don't forget to stir while waiting for the sugar to melt. Be careful while doing this as melting sugar can burn yourself.

2. Once the sugar melts and turns to yellowish/golden colour, add another two spoons of butter and stir the two ingredients together slowly.

3. Last but not least, turn off the heat and pour the popcorns that we cooked earlier to the pan. Don't forget to stir it into the caramel until it mixed together.

4. Let it cool for a while and it's ready to eat!


Popcorn Homemade


Easy, right? Usually, when we bought popcorn from outside, the amount is not that much and some of the popcorn are not even be caramelized. So sad. We paid for a plain popcorn? Hmm. The best thing about made it by yourself is, you can save your money and get more than what you have paid. Am I right? 😊

Unboxing + Review : Nivea Face Care Make Up Clear Radiant Skin Brush Set

During Lazada 5th Birthday Sale, I was scrolling through the website finding something to buy for myself. Not going to lie, I have so many products that I want to buy like makeup, beauty products, makeup brushes, bags and more. But none of them caught my heart.  So, I didn't buy anything during the sale.

A few days later, I went back to Lazada's website and finding something to pick again. Then I decided to choose this set and add it to my cart. I didn't straightly checkout my cart because I want to wait if I have any other things to buy. Since I was using my phone at that time, I got easily distracted by the social medias and I totally forgot about my cart. And guess what happened next? The price from RM29.95 went up to RM59.95! That's no way I'm going to spend my money with that price when I can get the same product for the lowest price. Right? Then I closed the window with frustrated and regret feelings during that time.

To shorten up my stories, I went back to Lazada's website again the next few days and I got a good news. The price went back to RM 29.95 and I immediately check out my purchase right away. Only God knows how excited I'm to received this item. For your information too, I already received it on last Monday and let's do some unboxing and review.

As you open up the box, you will get four products;
  • Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Cleansing Water 
  • Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Foam 
  • Nivea Extra White Makeup Starter 3 in 1 Whitening Mask 
  • Nivea Advanced Electric Facial Cleansing Brush 


Step 1: Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Cleansing Water


This cleansing water does a good job removing my makeup. It is similar to my Garnier Micellar Water and I can't find any different between those two. It just that, normally I will need at least two cotton pads to remove all my makeup including BB cream, powder, eyeshadow, mascara, blusher, lipstick and brow products. But not with this Nivea Cleansing Water because with one cotton pad, it removes almost everything on my face without me trying so hard to remove it. One thing that I noticed was this cleansing water sting your eyes a bit. So do avoid or careful when it comes to your eyes area.  


Step 2: Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Foam


For your information, I'm not using a makeup cleanser for a long time now. For me, my double cleansing term is, removing my makeup and wash my face with my daily facial cleanser. That should be enough, right? Because I don't see any point of using makeup cleanser while it works the same as your facial cleanser. The product itself has a nice subtle scent and foaming a bit. But I think because of the cleansing water already did a good job, that might be one of the reasons why this cleanser didn't give me so much different to my skin except my skin become a bit brighter and smooth. 


Nivea Advanced Electric Facial Cleansing Brush


This is the main reason why I want this set so much. This brush machine works the best with the makeup cleanser. I used both of the brush, it still works the best. For the silicone brush, I use it for my daily cleanser while the other one I using it when I wearing a makeup because it will deep clean and removes the remaining that I have on my face. So far so good. I really really love the brush. It makes my skincare routine easier and less time-consuming.  


Step 3: Nivea Extra White Makeup Starter 3 in 1 Whitening Mask


I haven't get the chance to try the mask yet but I'm looking forward to using it. Hopefully, it will work well on my skin. I think I saw this line (Makeup Starter) in the tube version. I don't think I saw it anymore on the drugstores.



As a conclusion, I really really love this set. It has all I need. I would like to recommend you guys to try it if you're interested. It's totally worth the money, trust me. I think that's all I have for now. Thank you for stopping by. Have a nice weekend with your loved one.

Have you ever tried any of this set?

Gfriend is Back! (The Awakening)

Gfriend

I think it's kind of habit to update about Gfriend every time they are having a new comeback. I know it kind of late but better late than never, right? Gfriend is back, guys! The waiting for months was totally worth it as they are back with a 4th mini album titled, 'The Awakening' on last March 6, 2017. As a Buddy (Gfriend's fan name), I looking forward to this as this comeback because of the new concept from cute and innocent to girl crush. A lot of changes I can say. Most of them, change their hair colours and SinB with a long hair. They are so pretty day by day when their outfit and style matches their new concept.

As a Buddy itself, of course, I already added the album to my playlist, listening to the songs and watching their stage performances from time to time. All of the songs in this album are my favourite but the songs I like the most are Hear The Wind Sing, FINGERTIP, Contrail, Please Save My Earth and Rain in the Spring Time.

Gfriend - The Awakening Track List


I don't know why but I feel bad for them for this comeback because they only won once on music shows chart so far. It may take some time for people to be familiar with their new concept changes, right? It also seems like it is hard for them to compete with the other groups too but still, I wish them the best because I know they can do it. Even if they didn't win on the music show charts but they already win in my heart. And I know they can do it, better than before in the future. Good luck, Gfriend!

Broken and Up Again




As usual, every time she had trouble to fall asleep, all the night thoughts came through her mind. She doesn't know why, but she cried so hard this time. 

She was okay before. No matter how much she feels sad, she can still control her emotions. She holds it by herself. But last night, she loses it. She cried so hard letting go all the burdens that she has been carrying for a long time. She talks and cries as someone was there with her. Listening to what she was going to say. Those are the words that she has been wanted to say for a long time. But no one. No one listening to her. She just keeps talking and talking let everything all out until it done.

Then she walked a bit and looked herself in the mirror. Both of her eyes are red and swollen. Her nose started to feel runny and blocked due to all the cries. Her inner part said that "This is totally not you..."

She finally goes to sleep without even she knowing. Until the next morning, she wakes up and looked herself into the mirror again. The inner part of her heart said that "That's going to be the last one you cried about it. You are strong to face all the problems even by your own." She wiped her tears and smile brightly to her new determine self.

"She is hurting but she is made of magic. She will rise again and her broken pieces will heal." - @taylorln_writes (Credit to Taylor LN)

I have seen this post on the reading lists since a few weeks now and it is nice to read them answering some random questions. And thanks to Flavnesz for tagging me to do this tag. I feel so special. Hehe Just kidding.

  • I do have a playlist just for my night time. I need to listen to the playlist every time I need it because I have a hard time sleeping at night. It is a must for me. The music is all from the sound of nature like rain, beach waves, and more. It helps me a lot.
  • I love the pink, blue, purple and white colour. My room is painted with pink, my bedsheet cover (as for now) is blue and white and if I buy anything,  I will pick my favourite colors.
  • I used to write a short story or e-novel on my blog before but stopped doing it because I have no confidence and courage to finish up the stories that I write.
  • I'm a cheese lover. I add cheese to anything that I think would be the best to the certain food. I would also pick anything that has cheese with it like cheesecake, a burger with a slice of cheddar cheese, cheezy wedges and more. OMG, I can't.

Everyone do. And every time I received the compliments, I just feel confident with myself. It means that I did something good or better in my life. You know what I mean...


What is your fantasy dream?


I once hoping to have a bigger room than my last room, and I have it now. So, my fantasy dream will be having a pretty nice size of a closet that fills with clothes, shoes, and accessories. Not to forget, a vanity that full with makeup too.

P/s; Can I have it?


What are your favourite things about Earth?


I don't know about the other planets, but my favourite things about Earth are we have so many countries to travel or go to and we also have seasons of the year. Even though in Malaysia, it always be either hot or humid but for other countries, there are four seasons like winter, spring, summer and autumn. People from that countries are so lucky to experience those seasons.


How would you spend your 'ME' time?


I will sleep more or lay on my bed while scrolling my social medias. I will also do some face treatment at home, do some reading, listening to music and watching my favourite shows or dramas.

Between the moon and the stars, which one would you pick and why?

I chose stars. Because they're so beautiful when it shines. I sometimes always looking up to the sky at night searching for the stars. It is a nice feeling ever!


Who could inspire you the most? Why?

People around me. My family, my friends, bloggers, celebrities, my favourite group or singers even random people can inspire me the most. Why? Because in this life, we will meet so many types of person out there and each person is a lesson for us. They do good, then it is good. They do bad, take it as a lesson and try not to make the same mistakes as them.


The first thing you notice in a person?

A smile. I love it when people smile. When a person smile, it gives positive vibes to other person and that's already enough to make people happy.

Korean Fashion Inspired Looks from Ezbuy

Hello, everyone! How's your day? I hope you have a good day today. Today, I will be sharing with you guys about fashion and style. To be honest, I'm not that good or expert when it comes to fashion. But I do have some sense when it comes to dressing up like make sure that your hijab is matching with your outfit or which shoe I should wear when I have to go to the event or something. Something like that. And since nowadays we always hear about South Korean like music, skincare, and fashion, I think Korean fashion or style is quite trending right now. As a Kpop fan, I think their fashion or style is so fresh, elegant, sophisticated but still look cute and simple in another way.

In today's post, I'm here to help you achieve a Korean style or look. With ezbuy.my you can find various type of clothing like t-shirts, jackets, dress, pants, and shoes that are suitable for men and women out there according to their fashion preferences.

Since I am a fan of Choi Soo Young from Girls' Generation, I would like to take a moment to do a few fashion inspired looks based on what Soo Young wears. For those who still didn't know about her, she is a singer, actress, and model too. With her height, I bet she can pull with anything she wears and she still will look pretty eventhough it is just a t-shirt and high-waist jean. Trust me.

For the first look, it will be a classic style. For a classic style, you don't have to try hard because a simple and minimal is all you need. It is the most comfortable style to wear for a whole day. I do think that it is better to wear at least one or two colour just to make it more classical look. Let's take a look at the picture below.


SOURCE: HERE

As you can see from the image above, Soo Young is wearing a white t-shirt and a black leather jacket, high-waist pant with a pair of boot. This minimal style is suitable for those who want to wear something simple but still looking presentable. Here is what I found on ezbuy.my to match the outfit that Soo Young wears on the picture. This kind of style is a perfect outfit for hanging out with friends, chilling out and more.







Bamboo Cotton White T-shirt: https://ezbuy.my/product/20000005807441.html
Black Leather Jacket: https://ezbuy.my/product/20000005723479.html
Black High-Waist Jean: https://ezbuy.my/product/20000005014683.html
Black High Heel Suede Boot: https://ezbuy.my/product/20000005382059.html

For the second look, it will be Glamorous style. Glamorous style is a style where you present yourself more than you usually do. What I mean here is something bold, dramatic and extra together with the look. Let's take a look at the picture below.


SOURCE: HERE

From the image above, we can see that Soo Young is wearing a long red dress with the same colour high heel. Her makeup also makes her glamorous look more realistic. The perfect time to wear glamorous look is when you're going to an event or party. This is the look or style that you need to put more effort when it comes to styling it. Since it is glamorous, it has to be stand out than usual. A bright and bold colour is all you need. It should be included with a glam makeup look to enhance your glamorous look for that day.










For the last look, it will be sophisticated style. This kind of style will give you a modern and elegant look to your appearance. You may add any accessories to your looks like a necklace, bracelet or even earring. Adding a bag also will help you to enhance your look.


SOURCE: HERE

As you can see from the image above, Soo Young is wearing a white blouse with a  mid length stripe skirt and a green handbag. The outfits suit the best with the sophisticated style that she wear. Usually, people who have careers or even not loves this kind of style because it gives confident and good looking to their outfit. Since I can't find the same pattern or type that Soo Young wears in ezbuy.my, I just look up to something similar. It is the same style but in a different version. This sophisticated style is suitable to wear when you're going to a formal event, 






















I think that's all I have for now. Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog. See you in the next one.

Don't forget to SIGN UP here. Special from me for you guys to get RM 15 voucher!

5 Things I Look Forward This Month



Hello, everyone. How're you guys doing? I can't believe how fast time flies and we are now entering March already. February went so slow for me. There's nothing much happened but I really looking forward to good things to happen for the next months ahead.


Finish reading at least a book

OMG, it is hard for me to keep on reading when you have no mood to read at all! I have been struggling with this issue for such a long time now and still, I can't eventhough I have tried. I do miss reading a lot. The feelings when you are reading a book are so different yet nice to think about. But it is hard for me. I just keep reading my old novels instead of the new one. I have been stopped buying a book since months ago and I really really hope that I can fix it by this month by starting to read the remaining books that I never got the chance to read before.


Adding new makeup to my collection

I'm so tempted to buy a new makeup right now. If it is right, it has been five months since my last time buying makeup items. Every time I went to drugstores, I always look at the makeup section first to try and search for something new but at the end, I ended up not buying anything just because I think it is not necessaries for me to buy plus I want to save my money at the same time. But whenever I reached home, I felt regret not buying it. I know it just my desire and I have to control it whether I want ti or not but sometimes buying makeup will make me feel happy. Especially when you have not bought it for such a long time. Am I right?


7 minutes exercises every day

This is the other things that I have been struggling. I'm a person who always not consistent when it comes to exercise. I have a lot of free time, but I chose not to do it because... I don't know. It could be random. What I mean by random is I do exercises whenever I feel like I want to and by it, it means once a week eventhough it just takes seven minutes only! If you wondering why it must be seven minutes? Because I don't think I will survive if I do any longer than that. Haha. But luckily I still do some exercises on the bed like sit up, bicycle crunches and few more just like what I have mentioned in my previous post before.


Get my double eyelid done

This might be weird for some of you but I think it is common to others. I think I have mentioned before about this but I'm going to say it again. I have uneven eyes. My right eye is okay but not for my left eyes which mean I have double eyelid on my right eye but not for my left one. It's a bit hard when it comes to eye makeup especially doing eyeliner and eyeshadow with this kind of eyes condition. That's the reason why I rarely wear eyeliner because every time I apply it on my lid it tend to become unbalance and the eyeliner will be folded with the lid. It's been four days now I'm wearing eyelid tape on my left eye and I will keep wearing it throughout this month. Hopefully, I can see the result by the end of this month.


Trying new recipes

I do love cooking actually and trying new recipes are my dream because I get the chance to enhance my skills and trying new methods in cooking. This week only, I got the chance to try making waffle and popcorn. I know it is a simple to try but I never do it so trying it for the first time is a big achievement for me. I don't want to brag myself but it is so good. I want to make it again next time. Recipe soon? Hehe Talking about food, I'm craving for sushi and Tako Tao right now. I wish I can make them by my own  Sushi is okay since the ingredients are easy to find at the supermarket but Tako? I don't own the tools. But we will see how it goes.


Do you have something that you look forward to this month?

Review : Ginvera Marvel White Zero Blackhead Marvel Gel

Hello, everyone. I think this going to be my first review in 2017, I guess? I haven't got the time trying the new thing until I bought this new product. The reason why I bought this is because my 'blackhead product' which is Vietnam Mask has finished a month ago and I really really need to find a new product so that I have a clear smooth skin, especially around my nose area. Having a rough skin full of blackheads and whiteheads around my nose area will make my makeup look cakey, thick and uneven and I really really hate it.

The product that I will be reviewing is Ginvera Marvel White. I bought it on last January at the Guardian. Instead of buying the normal size, I decided to buy the small size and give it a try first. Is it works? Let's find it out!

MY VERDICTS

Actually, I have tried it once before from my cousin just because I want to try it out by myself. I can say that it works every time I used it. It became a daily routine for me to use it before I wash my face at night. The texture of the product is gel and watery. The scent is quite nice and refreshing, and somehow it feels so clean? Not to mention, it is easy to use. I really love it by how each time I using it, it still works the same. To see all the junks out from your skin is the best thing ever. I noticed that after using it my skin became smooth. 10 points for not taken too much time like the other products would do. One step, you're good to go! But, I do think that this product only works on your outer skin, not inside because I can still see my blackheads on my pores. That is the only cons that I have with this product. Overall, it is a good product to try.



Ginvera Marvel White Zero Blackhead Marvel Gel

As you can see from the picture above, that is the result after using it. I used my hand as an example. Just pretend like I did it on my nose, okay?

I guess that's all I have for today's review. Thank you for reading! Have a nice weekend, everyone!

Monthly Roundup + Higlights : January 2017



Hello, everyone. How are you guys doing? I can't believe that we are now already in early February. I kinda feel good but sad at the same time since I'm looking forward what's going to happen to me in for this year and a bit down because there's not much achievement that I have so far. What I mean is nothing much change since the new year. Is it good or bad? I don't know. I need to discover more in order to enhance myself and achieve all my goals and resolutions for this year. Good luck for me and you too. May we achieve our goals and stay happy throughout this year.

Back to the title, today post is all about my January Roundup + Highlights. This is my first time doing this kind post so hopefully, I don't miss anything. Let's go!


HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MONTH 

🔹 Hangout with my classmate, Farah

After finishing my Diploma, everyone started to continue their life, some of them are going to further their studies, working and so on. It's hard to arrange the date due to the busy schedule. So, since I'm free I'm just waiting for the time to come. Glad that Farah and I had set a date to hang out together after a year not seeing each other,

🔹 Finally, graduated.

If you read my previous post, you might already know about this. Yes, I finally graduated on last 21st January. It's kind of nerve-wracking to walk on the big stage, receiving the scroll that you have been wanted since forever! But glad I did it. Nothing bad happened such as slip or something. Thank God.

🔹 New skincare routine

After a year, I decided to change my skincare routine. It is because  I already finished it out and some of my previous skincare products that I used before doesn't work well on my skin. The new skincare was suggested by my Mom since her friends spotted a difference after she using it. So far so good, I don't suffer oily skin anymore. Yay! Now I can only focus on how to reduce my acne scars and marks on my face. I might share the products that I use on the next post.

MOVIE/DRAMA/SHOW OF THE MONTH

I rarely watch movies or dramas but I do watch Korean shows like Runningman, We Got Married and The Law of the Jungle. I will try not to miss every single new episode of that shows because watching it makes me feels relax and chill. And for dramas, I do watch Biar Aku Jadi Penunggu while waiting for dinner but most of the time I always missed it because it's Maghrib time and I don't have so much time to watch television during that time. At the same time, I don't feel like watching it through online too. How can it be like that? Hmm. I just finished watched The Legend of the Blue Sea, guys! The drama was so good! I know I'm late but it's better late than not watching at all, right? If you haven't watch it yet, please do so because the storyline is quite different than the others.

BOOK OF THE MONTH

I cleaned up my book shelf and sort it nicely since it is everywhere in my room. Then, I realized that I have few novels that I still not reading yet. My cousin also did give me a book for me to read. To be honest, it's been a long time since my last time reading a book or novel. So, I didn't read any new book but I did read the books that I love countless time already. Promise you, this February I will start reading back, and finish at least two books on that month.

GOALS & RESOLUTIONS UPDATES

🔹 Start writing again

Hmm, I guess it doesn't work for the first month as I'm quite busy with my big day which is my graduation day. But, perhaps I should try to find the storyline, characters and what not before starting everything, right?

🔹 Losing weight

Definitely didn't work at all! In fact, I gained more and more until the point that I regret not doing exercises and control my meals and diet. 

🔹 Find solutions for my skin

As I mentioned before, I'm using new skincare products now and the results are quite good so far. My skin right now is in a good condition, not too oily nor too dry. Just one thing that I have been struggling for is to reduce my acne scars and marks. And I'm using a face oil treatment in order to reduce it. I don't know whether it works or not since I'm just starting it. Will update more soon.

🔹 Earn my own money

I can say that I earned some but not that much. But to the point that I can survive on my own, it is not. I still working hard to earn money. It all depends on luck and rezeki.

🔹 Be stronger than usual

I don't cry as much as I did before, so it is a good thing, right? It means that I'm becoming a strong person now but still if something happens I might cry and feel down. But that doesn't mean that I will just stay like that crying the whole time, of course, I will go up and smile.

🔹 Save money

There are some good things happened. I'm not buying the things that I don't need anymore, which is good. I didn't buy any makeup things for this month and I just bought the things that I really really need only like my skincare products, and also my USB cable since mine is already broken.

I think that's all for now. Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog. I really really appreciate it. Till then.


It feels so good to be back, writing a post after a while away from it 💕
